Scratching Times
All scratching's to be phoned through to RQ headquarters (07 32627800) by the owner/trainer from 7.30am to 8.30am (strict cut off time) on the day of the meeting.

Trainers will need to provide the ear brand of the greyhound, their licence number as well as a valid reason for the scratching.

Any scratching's received after 8.30am on the day of the meeting will be deemed a late scratching and veterinary or other official advice will be required or penalties will be applied.

Scratching's can be phoned through to RQ headquarters anytime prior to the scheduled race day during normal office hours.

If your greyhound is drawn as a reserve runner it is the trainers responsibility to check if the greyhound has obtained a start. All scratching details can be found on thedogs.com.au, Tattsbet or alternatively the Towsnville club.

Further as it is a TAB meeting, reserve runners who do not gain a start are not required to be bought to the track.
